Week 8 QB Streaming for 1-QB and 2-QB Leagues

QB streaming advice in 1-QB and 2-QB leagues for Week 8 of the 2017 fantasy football season.

Week 7 QB Streaming Recap

And so the injury bug continues to spread. This week, Jay Cutler suffered broken ribs, and Carson Palmer, a broken arm, removing them from the streaming pool for the foreseeable future.  Meanwhile, the Cardinals, Colts, and Broncos were all shut out. All while the 49ers and Browns continue to look for their first victory on the season. As for our Week 7 streamers, Josh McCown out-performed last week’s season-best fantasy performance, and Tyrod Taylor followed suit with his best fantasy day thus far, leading his team to a 30-27 win over the Buccaneers. Three of my four Week 7 picks produced top-15 fantasy results, while Brett Hundley showed some promise with his legs, and will get value out of his bye week.

2QB Option 1 Josh McCown 25.5 6
2QB Option 2 Brett Hundley 12.9 19
With six more teams on bye this week, and another six positioned to start their backup quarterback, streamers are in demand and can be invaluable to leading your franchise to a Week 8 victory.
